10 Marble Accessories For Every Room In The House
Interior design has a long history. So long, in fact, that it pretty much stretches back to the first time human beings built shelters and had to distinguish indoors from outdoors. Since then, there's been an innumerable amount of trends. Some come and go, others go and come back. But there's some, a select few, that have been so consistently a part of what is considered to be good design, even across cultures, that it's hard to think of them as trends.
One of these fundamental design elements... is marble. While it's history in interior design may not go as far back as patterns like chevrons or stripes, it reaches back at least as far as Roman colosseums and Greek temples. Since then, it's distinctive look and exciting array of colors has kept marble a consistent part of many of the best designed - and most expensive - interiors in history. So today, when we say that there is a trend in marble accessories sweeping through modern interiors, it's not so much the resurgence of something old, as it is a reimagining of something that never seems to get old.
Unlike in times past, bringing a touch of marble to your home today won't necessarily include large slabs of expensive stone. Today's aesthetic is much more about small touches that uplift a design scheme or pieces that evoke the feel of the stone.
